School Direct – School experience

Gaining experience within a school environment is an important first step on your pathway to teaching. At Hope Sentamu Learning Trust we offer a School Experience Programme (SEP) which aims to give you a valuable opportunity to experience what it is like to teach your own class and engage with pupils of varying ages.

You have the chance to observe a lesson in your chosen subject, engage with pupils and teachers and speak with leading practitioners about our outstanding School Direct programme which we are proud to deliver in partnership with York St John University.

We aim to deliver a tailored school experience to meet your needs. We keep the groups of attendees fairly small to allow for your individual questions and allow us to offer tailored advice on your next steps into teaching, including the application process through UCAS, advice on personal statements, and what will be expected of you during the interview process.

For 2022-23 we are recruiting in the following subjects:

Biology, Chemistry, Drama, English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages,
Music, PE, PE with EBacc, Physics, Religious Education
All experience days are at a range of Hope Sentamu Learning Trust schools and further days within
our partner schools may be possible. During 2021-22, Hope Sentamu Learning Trust will deliver both
face-to-face and virtual school experience led by Dr Brian Rock, Initial Teacher Training Lead at Hope
Sentamu Learning Trust.

Wednesday 17 November 2021
9:00am – 12:30pm at Vale of York Academy
Tuesday 30 November 2021
9:00am – 12:30pm at Barlby High School
